Glenn Beck: Take this house and shove it


Glenn Beck: Warning signs missed on economy

Longtime viewers of my television program know that I've been banging the recession drum for a while now, but the truth is that an economy as large and complex as ours doesn't just collapse overnight. It happens slowly and methodically, with plenty of warning signs along the way.

Think about it as a series of waves heading toward the beach, with each one representing a different area of trouble. There's one for slowing consumer spending (American Express said that spending among its affluent clients slowed for the first time since 2001); one for inflation (wholesale and consumer prices recently posted their largest increases in 26 and 17 years, respectively); and one for the continuing credit crunch (Citigroup recently announced its fourth-quarter loss was the largest in its 196-year history).

But while those waves are the latest to form, we need to pay more attention to the wave that started it all: housing. In theory, looking closely at the housing market in some parts of the country could help predict what's in store for the rest of us. And if that's true, then buckle up.

Complete story...

GLENN: Going to take a quick break here and I also want to tell you that there is a -- and Stu, help me out on this. I can't believe that CNN.com actually printed my editorial on the economy.

STU: I don't see why not.

GLENN: It's on the front page of CNN.com.

STU: As you know, Glenn, you work for a division of CNN which honors the fact that you have opinions that some people think are crazy.

GLENN: Shhh.

STU: I mean, that is part of the business we do.

GLENN: Yes, my point exactly. So here's the editorial. Glenn Beck, warning signs missed on the economy. Glenn Beck says USA economy has slowly been collapsing. He says some people are trashing their houses before leaving them and politicians have a lot of ludicrous ideas for solving economic problems, he says. In it on CNN.com right now I trash Hillary Clinton and the Democrats who -- well, even George W. Bush who want this stimulus package. Let's just put this -- here's one of the lines when I get into Hillary Clinton: Now, I'm not a former first lady but I am a thinker. So let me ask the obvious question." I can't believe they've actually put this up on the front page of CNN.com.

STU: It's exciting.

GLENN: And they didn't change the font lines on this. The opinions expressed on this commentary or solely those of the writer. I don't think they would have led with that.

STU: I'm surprised that wasn't the title.

GLENN: I know. I'm surprised it doesn't just scroll across the page the whole time. It should be -- should be all capitals. It's like they are shouting it: The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the writer!

STU: I've got to ask you a question about this article. I was reading. I think I understand what you're saying but I have a question for you about it. Do we have time for this?

DAN: We have just a minute.

STU: We have just a second. When you are saying this, you almost come out like you are -- I understand you don't like the idea of a stimulus package, it's not the best way to help the economy but I don't know that there's ever a time that I feel like, yeah, you know what, tax rebate, bad idea. I don't -- cut my taxes.

GLENN: Yeah, here's why tax rebate is a bad idea. Tax rebate is a bad idea because tax rebate is crack cocaine. It will give -- it is a $800 blip on the radar screen that goes away. Most people take that $800 and they will pay down their debt. So, yes, great. I can take $800 and I'll pay down my debt but it does nothing to stimulate the economy and it's short lived. In the article I explain. I mean, when are people going to understand income tax slashing? What we have is the second highest corporate tax rate in the world, about to be the first. We've got to slash those rates. You've got to do permanent things. And you also have to take a bitter pill. People were stupid, they got into houses they couldn't afford. Banks were stupid. They lent too much money out. They got greedy. You know what? They need to feel the pain. The homeowner that has that needs to feel the pain. You cannot keep giving aspirin and Band-Aids for these bubbles. You must lance the boil to be able to heal, and we're never going to heal if we keep playing these games with the economy. Read all about it, front page at CNN.com. It is warning signs missed by the economy by me.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
